Grades: Toddler+

Skill Development:

Math- Use this set to teach equivalents. Order a pizza with half pepperoni/half green pepper and have your students create a full pizza with your specifications.

Basic Concepts- Pizza toppings can lead to a lesson in matching, sorting and grouping- all important in understanding similarities and differences. Students learn how to compare and contrast different aspects of the pizzas, learning organizational thought and becoming more astute to detail.

Language- Imaginative pizza play leads to receptive and expressive language opportunities by listening to what is ordered, then assembling it.

 

Specifications:

 

The 3 pizzas feature 1/2, 1/4, and 1/8 slices.

Very fun toddler sized pizzas that have the bonus of teaching fractions (printed on the back). A very cute idea. The pizzas are a durable rubbery material.

    Comments about Learning Resources Smart Snacks® Piece-A-Pizza Fractions™:

    I use this with students who can identify numerals 1-20. When my other students see how much fun they are having, they start working harder on identifying their numerals. It has also increased my students mathematical vocabulary.

    Comments about Learning Resources Smart Snacks® Piece-A-Pizza Fractions™:

    While it is great to teach fractions, the different pieces didn't equal the same weight (ie, the 2 1/8 pieces didn't equal the weight of the 1/4 piece, and so on) Not a problem unless you're trying to teach pre-K the concept.)

      Comments about Learning Resources Smart Snacks® Piece-A-Pizza Fractions™:

      My kids love pretend play and they love pizza. My youngest is 14 months so I stayed away from other brands pretend pizza, since they had small parts for him to put in his mouth. I bought these mainly for pretend play, but am delighted at the math skills my 2.5 yo and 4 yo have learned from playing with this! They both quickly picked up that 2 quarters can replace 1 half. It gets them working together. They can each have a pizza (I have 3 kids) but I'll order half pepperoni and half green pepper, so they'll trade to make my order. My 14 month old has chewed on it and it still looks wonderful. I have no doubt that this will last for YEARS!

        Comments about Learning Resources Smart Snacks® Piece-A-Pizza Fractions™:

        My 2 tr old twins love this toy. The only down side is the cardboard storage box that can not hold up to the abuse of toddlers. Great for multiples since there are three personal sized pizzas. They love using the pizza cutter and server to cut and dish out the slices. In spite of the box issues I love the toy. Would pay a little extra for a more durable box. Expect my kids to play with this differently over a long time period. Dual purpose toy. Works for kitchen play and intro to math concepts.
